Starting next season, the annual Army-Navy football game will become the last regular-season college football game each year. For the first time since 1985, it will take place on the second Saturday in December, so as not to conflict with the conference championship games scheduled for the first Saturday.
Next season's Army-Navy game is scheduled to take place at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia.
"By moving it a week, it really puts it in prime time," Navy athletic director Chet Gladchuk said yesterday. "It will be a 2:30 kickoff. It will be a stand-alone event with a one-week buildup. It just gives it a pedestal, probably next to the national championship game or the Super Bowl, it's right there.
